Cessna 180 - Scale model for R/C. Cessna 180 from Hobby Helpers sheet 1163, dated 1963. Span is 42in. For single channel RC and a Cox TeeDee .049.
Quote: - "When the Cessna people designed the full-size craft they must have had novice radio control flyers in mind; their boxy high-winger scales down to a fine R/C project that takes most any 1-channel receiver. The Cessna 180 is particularly good for scale R/C. Its proportions provide the required stability. Model construction, despite the sleek appearance, is not much more difficult than the average..."

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
